letters from home

 
I sat and typed my son an old fashion letter on this 
vintage typewriter in hopes it will arrive Kuwait before he returns from his mission in Iraq next week
Yep, a few tears fell as I tapped away at those chunky keys!!





and if you want to send a soldier a letter here is his address 
Sgt Kyle Broughton
511th En Tm Dive
APO AE 09337
all it requires is a US 44 cent postage stamp

 He loves snail mail , from anyone, anywhere, anytime
Tell him "Mom" sent ya!!


It's the best $10.44 I spent in a long time!
$10 vintage typewriter
random words=free from the heart
.44 postage
~priceless~

Typewriter - so fun. I would love to hear the noise of the keys tap-tap-tapping...

Took down the address- I would love to send Kyle a note and let him know that his sweet Mom sent me.

Big Love to you !
